  1. WTB: .22 Quiet (I'm All Set)

    Update: Another forum member has offered to sell me some. Thanks. I'm looking for a couple of boxes of .22 quiet. Woodchucks are getting into the garden and I can't find quiet .22 ammo anywhere. I can pay cash or trade for regular .22, 9mm or 5.56. Taunton area. PM me. Thanks.
  2. Cartridge Style Trigger in 80%?

    Will a drop-in cartridge style trigger assembly cooperate with an 80% lower? Obviously the trigger well will have some varying dimensions so there's a possibility of the trigger housing being too wide or too narrow to fit properly. Do cartridge triggers have some way to manage this?
  3. Dumb Question on Long Gun Lights

    So I have a Streamlight TLR-1 on my nightstand handgun but I have several long guns that have never been accessorized due to my ignorance and laziness. The small potential for a COVID-19 disaster has motivated me to "prep" a couple of the rifles. I just did some research and ordered some slings...
  4. Fixturing a Stock for Drilling Cheekrest Holes?

    I have a Savage Mark II BV (laminate stock with bull barrel) but I can only get a chin weld on the stock when looking through the scope. I'd like to install an adjustable height comb so I can play around with the height and also be able to move it down to remove the bolt for cleaning. The...
  5. Anyone Work in Facilities or Industrial Maintenance?

    I inherited my father's mechanical aptitude and I'm kind of a jack-of-all-trades type. I can do basic electrical, very basic plumbing, auto repair, woodworking, metalworking, etc. I have a lot of curiosity about mechanical things, common sense, patience, understanding of mechanical things, good...
  6. Ruger Pistol Caliber Carbine Bolt Release Operation?

    Picked up a new Ruger Pistol Caliber Carbine in 9mm over the weekend. The bolt release is just forward of the trigger guard. Is there "the way" or a best practice to operate a carbine/rifle with this design? I'm a righty. Not sure if I should operate the bolt handle with my right hand and use my...
  7. Beginner Red Dot Questions

    Scopes and iron sights are the only experience I have so far and I'd like to try a red dot on my Victory .22 to start. I know nothing about red dots other than some online articles I've read. Currently leaning towards a Vortex Venom. I've noticed that sometimes they're mounted back where the...
  8. Need a SKILLED Roofer in Taunton Area

    The house is a cape with dormers, oversized garage and two small additions so there's a lot of roof and some weird seams and angles. Roof was done in 2003 and it's never been right. There have been some leaks and the rainwater loves to go behind the gutters and run down the fascia. I'm looking...
  9. Faxon VS Ballistic Advantage?

    I'm building my first upper. It'll be 5.56 for plinking and general use so I'm looking at brands that offer a good compromise between quality and value. Reliability is important because I want to feel like I built a decent rifle that's likely to function rather than always wondering if it's...
  10. AR Armorer's Wrench to Torque Castle Nut?

    I need the tools to properly torque the castle nut on the buffer tube and eventually the barrel nut. It looks like most armorer's wrenches only have the square hole for the torque wrench on the barrel nut end of the wrench. Does anyone know of an Armorer's wrench that will allow me to use a...
  11. Need Concrete Floor Contractor in Taunton

    The asphalt driveway and concrete garage floor meet directly under the garage doors. There's a jagged gap there and the doors have never sealed well. It's time for new garage doors and I'd like to have the garage floor extended about 12" so the new doors will come down on a smooth flat floor. I...
  12. Interesting Article About Social Media and Smartphones Hurting Children

    One of my friends is a teacher and she's also incredibly fit and outdoorsy (races bikes, snowboards, lifts weights, runs, plays an instrument, etc) She's old fashioned and modern at the same time. Like us, she laments the decrease in physical activity and outdoor time for kids. She shared this...
  13. Role Playing at Work (for Training)

    We're forced to role play during training at work and I find it to be incredibly awkward. The role playing thing detracts from the learning experience because I have to multi-task instead of just focusing on the stuff I want to learn. I feel like I'm acting or "on-stage" so I kinda get the...
  14. Letter of Recommendation Template?

    Is there a template somewhere that I can just modify a little bit. A co-worker is applying in a green town and he needs two letters. I searched the forum but didn't see one. Thanks.
  15. Identify Some Birds I Saw Today

    I was bicycling through Rehoboth this morning when two birds came out of the brush and into the road in front of me. When I was about 20 feet away they flew almost straight up about 15 feet into a tree overhanging the road. They were frantically clucking like a chicken but it was screechy and a...
  16. 230V Receptacle for Garage/Welder Question

    My house is 70 years old and the ENTIRE garage runs off of one 115V circuit. I do light woodworking, metalworking and vehicle maintenance but nothing too crazy. Occasionally, the air compressor kicks on while I'm using the table saw so the breaker trips and I lose everything including the...
  17. Which Interface for Solid State Drive?

    It's been about 7 years since I've built a new computer so I'm trying to get familiar with all of the current standards. I'm planning on a budget box with an i3 and Windows 10 in a MicroATX case. This will be a simple HTPC for email, web browsing and streaming Netflix/Xfinity/Youtube on my...
  18. Are All Sling QD's Compatible Across Brands?

    I've never used or owned a sling but I'd like to get one for my AR. I may never use it but it seems like it'll be good to have in a post apocalyptic dystopian Road Warrior scenario. I like the Magpul MS4 because I can experiment with single point or dual point. My AR has a Magpul stock so I'll...
  19. "Loophole Closing" and EFA10 for Lowers

    Random question here. I've never purchased a lower or built an AR but my understanding is that you have to fill out the federal 4473 when you purchase a lower but you don't have to do the EFA10 until the rifle is assembled and operating. What happens now when someone tries to do an EFA10 for a...
  20. How Much Backlash Should a Parker Bench Vise Have?

    I picked up an old Charles Parker Trojan 704 machinists bench vise and wirewheeled and painted it. There's 3/16" - 1/4" of backlash / jaw slop which translates to 180 degrees of handle rotation. I'm not sure if it's due to 80+ years of wear or if that's how a bench vise should be to reduce jaw...
